Group fights to block same sex marriage

A conservative group has launched a legal fight to try to block the state of California from going ahead with same-sex marriages.The Arizona-based Alliance Defense Fund filed papers late Thursday requesting that the California Supreme Court's overturn of a gay marriage ban be put on hold until November.

That's when California voters will likely decide whether to amend the state's constitution to ban same sex marriage.

Justices have until mid-June to consider the defense fund's petition.
